Author and genomics activist Misha Angrist, PhD, is participant number four in Harvard Medical School's Personal Genome Project, a groundbreaking research effort created by Dr. George Church, one of the founding forces behind the Human Genome Project and inventor of numerous sequencing technologies. Dr. Angrist's new book, Here is a Human Being, chronicles his experience as one of the first people on the planet to have his entire genome sequenced. Misha delves deep into the personalities, hopes, and fears surrounding this emerging technology. He brings the reader an intensely personal perspective shaped by his experiences as a researcher and stint as a genetic counselor, but most of all, by his time exploring what his genome means for himself, and the people who share his DNA, his two daughters.

Also joining us for a group discussion are several Bay Area experts at the forefront of the future of personalized genomic medicine: Jason Bobe, Exectuive Director of Personal Genomes.org; Dr. Hugh Rienhoff, founder of mydaughtersdna.org; Hank Greely, Deane F. and Kate Edelman Johnson Professor of Law at Stanford; and Joel Dudley, bioinformatician at Stanford Medical School.
